HDC Events 2020


        Starting July 11th, 2020 - Over the past 200 years, Western New York has been witness to the socioeconomic rise and decline of the mighty steel industry. Like other rust belt cities, Buffalo, New York, was once an incredible financial and manufacturing superpower on the Great Lakes. At one time, the steel industry employed almost a third of the regional population - many of whom still live in the area. As time progressed, failure to develop and compete with foreign contenders ultimately led to the collapse of its steel industry. Come see this ongoing exhibit at the Steel Plant Museum.

The exhibit: "The Steel Crisis! The Decline of Buffalo's Steel Industry" will explore why Buffalo's Steel Industry failed and the effects of its closing.

There is ample free parking and is open to the general public. For groups of six or more please call ahead at (716) 821-9361 to schedule a date and time. Thank You!
